president clinton's high in the sky plan to spend $6 billion for clean energy. was dead on arrival. obama got $90 billion in his first months before his staff could find bathrooms in the west wing. just ridiculous. the stimulus was pouring unprecedented rivers of cash and renewables and energy efficiency and every imaginable form, advanced biofuel and electric vehicles and cutting edge research, smarter grid, cleaner coal, factories to make that green stuff in the united states. it was by far the biggest energy bill in history. kind of got me curious what else was in the stimulus everyone was laughing about. i did some investigative reporting with a google search. i learned that the stimulus had also launched race to the top which was a real moment. have you heard of race to the top? there was a huge deal in the education reform world that was supposed to transform public schools. i had no idea it was the stimulus program. did any of you? any way, it became clear there was a huge story can in plain view. most of the stimulus was standard keynesian stimulus, pumping money into the economy
advisor is here. so is paul begala who helped bill clinton become president and is working to keep barack obama president. all of it with an eye to tuesday and beyond. that's because tuesday could be when president obama regains the initiative which he lost on stage in denver, or when mitt romney might consolidate his gains. first, quickly, the event that really sets the table for tuesday, last night's vice presidential debate, which depending on who you ask is either pulling president obama's case for re-election off the critical list or vindicated mitt romney's choice as paul ryan as running mate. depends what side of the political aisle you stand on. keeping them honest, each debater had moments that didn't quite stand up to closer scrutiny. first, paul ryan on the stimulus, which vice president biden called him on. >> they said that right now if we just passed the stimulus, the economy would grow at 4%. it's growing at 1.3. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters but go on our website, he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for
to secretary of state hillary clinton claiming that quote, multiple u.s. federal government officials confirmed to the committee that prior to september 11th attack, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the mission in libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in washington. the fbi arrived in benghazi wednesday, three weeks after the attack, but spent only about 12 hours there. we're back with dan henninger, and also wall street board, matt comiskey and bret, foreign policy has said to be a big edge for president obama. is that edge eroding maust of libya and the middle east. >> i think it is eroding and time the president to get credit for policies that don't exist. >> there's focus on the kind of bureaucratic blunders made both prior didded especially prior to the attack and not sufficiently securing our diplomatic security there. >> it's an important issue? >> it's a democratic issue. >> paul: don't we have to keep our diplomatic issues secure? >> yes, but it's not the largest issue. i think these congressman, darrell issa will be

. that is not going to happen. [applause] one of the main reasons record surpluses under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward. not now. not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train two million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half. create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how yo
i said, whatever it was. >> cenk: mitt romney in a nutshell. this guy is unreal. so clinton is deciding, you know what, i'm not going to let him get away with this. bill clinton in nevada listen to what he is saying. >> i thought--i thought--wow. here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy i missed you all these years. >> cenk: that might have been my favorite line of the campaign. where you been, boy. that's an open hand slap, boy what are you going to do about it? you remember 'ol mitt romney called moderate mitt, that's what bill clinton called him. when he was running for governor in massachusetts, first as governor and then did it again with ted kennedy when running for senate. me? i'm pro-choice. listen to this guy. >> i will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose, a woman's right to choose for a woman to make that choice herself. a woman should have the right to make her own choices whether or not she should have an abortion. i will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose. i do not take the position of a pro-life candidate. i'm in favor of preserving
the man -- i have been using the term, the alternate cavalry leader bill clinton. i was young enough to remember what it was like when ike came into the campaign for nixon and almost won it for nixon. ike was still the guy who won world war ii in europe and he comes in, i hope we have the pictures, these crowds he would get. new york city, a million people in what's considered a democratic state even then. a million people in downtown new york came out for nixon and lodge. these pictures are unbelievable what eisenhower was able -- can bill clinton do that in the important states of pennsylvania, ohio, florida, virginia? >> i think he can. i really do. i think clinton still has the magic with a lot of voters out there across the spectrum. it's not just in the democrat camp. there are a lot of independent voters and some republicans who admire what he did -- >> because he did the economy. >> what he did with the economy. so i think this particular clinton card is being played very judiciously by the campaign. they're going to put him out there even more so. i think it's smart. >> now,
is the front page of "the washington post" this morning. clinton was among the first obama administration officials to publicly condemn the attack and warned the deaths of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans." host: "and the administration account of the attack. the state department instead will send a trusted to rid diplomat along with three security officials. had the hearing, as they depart officials provide new details about the attack while asserting there was no way to predict or prevent the sustained assault." as we read from "the washington times," they took away any claims that this attack was due to protests about that video. that is a front page of "washington times." they also include a timeline, a brief chronology about the aftermath of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya, if you are interested in that, in "the washington times." david miliband writes this morning -- host: that is some background for you before you tune in to the hearing. our coverage at noon today, that is when the hearing begins. chad, silver spring, maryland, independent. thanks
. you're right, we said in the run up to 2008 that hillary clinton was the most dominant front-runner in politics. that had nothing on what we should be if she decided to run in 2016. >> can i just -- no. i got to tell you. you know, i know she's enormously popular right now but it's because she's not running. i mean, it's not that hard to be that popular. >> but a lot of democrats are saying, wait a minute, she literally got shafted in 2008. this is not fair. this is her turn and thus -- look, this is -- >> they're saying, she's been a loyal soldier for the last eight years, quote-unquote. she has to run. >> i said it in '08. i'll say it in '16. it is not a place for loyalty or for mrs. clinton. it is an indication about one's own ability. i think she's fantastic. i really do. i also think that american voters don't particularly like older women. we won't even buy like makeup from older women. i think even as i was talking about joe biden being 70, hillary clinton as an aging woman becomes less and less appealing to american voters. not in the way that -- just in a way that i
department under the bus. >> no question. >> two different areas. that's hillary clinton. hillary clinton runs the state department. is hillary clinton being thrown under the bus by vice president biden in all of this. if you ask lt. general michael hayden, former director of national security and michael chertoff former homeland security secretary basically saying there wasn't a failure of intelligence. maybe the hand is now pointing at the state department. listen to them. >> actually re -- >> for the vice president to admit outloud that he he had no idea what was going on. ignorance is hardly a defense. the fact of the matter is there were over 230 security incidents there in libya. our consulate there in benghazi had been bombed twice. now, where else in the world are you aware of any consulate or embassy having been bombed twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in
call on this from clinton, illinois. matt is waiting on the independent line. good morning. caller: mitt romney needs to go after the whole libya at incident. he may have made a few missteps regarding coming out with information, but he needs to layoff of that, because it is one thing that he can actually use. i do not know if it will help his foreign policy, because obama can just come back and say -- that is what i did -- but that is something he will really have to focus on if he wants to do those foreign policy speeches. host: thank you for giving us a ring this morning. you want to show you a little bit from that speech released yesterday. mitt romney is expected to say that he knows the president hopes for a safer and freer and more prosperous middle east -- host: we want to bring in now from "the washington post" a reporter to talk about this speech today. thank you for joining us today. caller: thank you for having me on. host: what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? caller: as was mentioned this morning, this will be late in the game for him to be giving a speech
's did a good job. martha did seem to interrupt and challenge ryan more. next up is clinton veered clinton joins us from virginia on our republican line. caller: good morning. i was in the other room and have the volume turned up loudly. take and the entire debate. and i had a hard time in the initial stages of it telling if martha was on the side of the republicans or democrats. i thought she was -- they brought in a third party that was arguing for the democrats. to me she was very biased, initially. and, again, the term moderator -- she is supposed to take an active role in moderating what is said. and it seems as one of the other callers mentioned, it was more like watching a circus. host: is there an ideal moderator in your mind? someone you would like to see moderate these debates? caller: you have to go back to the 1970's to find someone who is impartial. today it seems that every one has an overstatement -- that is an overstatement. but ones that i have seen, of course everyone has an opinion, and that is going to be difficult for me to take a specific one. host: that as cl

is hidden. i remember for a book i did called "the agenda" on bill clinton, and it was about his economic plan. i interviewed him once, and it was on background. but he's talked about it, so i have talked about it. and you go into to the oval office. this was early 1994, and clinton drills you with this eye contact that is absolutely a gravitational force. i've never seen anyone maintain eye contact like bill clinton. and to a -- and it's unblinking. and he just stares and, of course, it creates a sense of intimacy, it slows time down, and i remember thinking this eye contact is amazing, and somebody later suggested to me, said, well, he wanted to be president ever since he was 5. [laughter] and he decided to contribute all organs in the body to the task. [laughter] including the eyes. [laughter] and it's, you can drain yourself. you just don't -- you can train yourself, you just don't blink. so we're going through there, and i thought, oh, this is a great interview. and he's so focused. i each started thinking, oh -- i each started thinking, oh, he realizes how brilliant my questions are
. president bush had a surplus when he took office, thanks to president clinton. our president takes office, 800,000 jobs, we're losing them every single month. the president has been working hard and all he has to do is stand on his record, talk about his record and remind folks who is there to make an economy that is built to last, to build an economy from the middle out and not the top down. who doesn't have to pretend that he cares about the 47% and for women. look at the lilly ledbetter act, so the president needs to bring it to governor romney the next time they go face to face and remind the folks who has been standing in the ready position for them. ohio will remember and we are going to vote for president barack obama. >> both candidates, though, in ohio today. ohio state senator nina turner, thank you for your time. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> absolutely. >>> we're following breaking news out of bellefonte, pennsylvania, sentencing day for jerry sandusky. and as the judge put it he'll be spending the rest of his life behind bars. i'll talk with an attorney who represents cer
, as president clinton said. the reality is that any past or on tax reform that promises to cut rates will either end up failing to reduce the deficit or failing to protect the middle class from a net tax increase. you can, at most, achieved two of these goals. anyone pushing a plan purporting to accomplish all three is not telling the truth. the sooner we are honest with ourselves about this, the easier it will be to negotiate an actual compromise on taxes and on deficit reduction. in 1986, we chose to cut the top rate and protect the middle class. we did not seek to reduce the deficit. simpson-bowles seeks to cut the top rate and reduce the deficit but did not shield the middle class. -- from a net tax increase. we need a third approach that project -- prioritizes reducing the deficit and protecting the middle class and is willing to forgo a reduction in the top rate and that is what i am proposing today. what should this proposal look like? it would have three principles -- first, as in 1986, it still makes sense to reduce the number of expenditures in the code to the extent possible. in figur
. >> reporter: overnight the stars came out to help president obama. bill clinton and katy perry were among celebrities on hand at a fund-raiser. one of five events expected to raise $10 million. this after mr. obama and democrats raised $181 million last month. the president made a joke last week. >> they just performed flawlessly, night after night. i can't always say the same. >> reporter: the president's rival, mitt romney is on the stump drawing huge crowds, thousands of accounts in florida. >> you'll have the chance to hear his answers or his nonanswers. now, of course, days later, we're hearing his excuses. >> reporter: a new gallup poll confirms romney picked up momentum after last week's debate. president obama is leading romney three points after being up six points after his speech. romney focusololk coke us on hi plan. it calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. >> reporter: the candidates pounced on tv ads. romney does want to cut tax rates that would reduce revenue by $5 trillion over ten years. romney has refused to say which one, leaving him open to attack. >> today, mitt romney wil
, is it going to be the former president bill clinton or is it going to be, i don't know, bon jovi? >> reporter: wow, you know, that's a tough one. i have to say probably both of them will help him because, you know, the president not only bon jovi but also katy perry is here, george clooney, jennifer hudson. a lot of other big names that appeal to a broad array of voters from the old school like earth wind and fire, so older audiences but also some of the young people as well. so i think the president's covering it all with the various stars who are helping here at this fund-raiser but you can't take anything away from what the xlin believes former president bill clinton brings to the table, not only in the speeches he delivers, but also out there in fund-raising. he's held a number of fund-raising events and this week as well here in california he will be holding a fund-raiser. one expected to raise about $160,000. so he's key to the campaign in addition to these entertainers, don. >> so a debate, two big names in the obama campaign, talked about today about the president's performance. what'
clinton claimed during the monica lewinsky scandal our founding fathers were philanders. this is an outrage. >> this is different than bill clinton. i want to stay with this ag department. we talked about the gsa and all the corruption going on. they're willy-nilly taking taxpayer dollars. i don't know if you know how much. the reports say a couple thousand dollars and have people chant. i don't like chants, by the way. i'm offended by that part, too. how much dough did they spend on this chicago consultant? >> if they're willing to admit 200,000, it's probably a lot more. this is a government-wide program. we had the same thing going on at nasa with the administrator a couple years ago when he was going it to outreach with muslims and we had it with the fbi director last year when he met with muslim groups. it's one thing to create diversity transformation, but it's another thing to use taxpayer money for these things when it's not what the agencies are about. it's clearly inappropriate. >> this is the agriculture department. what does this have to do chanting our foref
the best three and a half years they have had since clinton was in the white house when they used to say that about him as well. you can't get ammo anymore because dealers get their boxes of ammo in and people rush in and get it because they have signs and salesman are saying this president is going to take away your guns tomorrow. no, next week. but he's going to take them away. so the gun dealers in america are having banner sales every day of the week because tomorrow, next week, next month, next term, he's going to take away your guns. >> but the nra are powerful. they have a lot of money to spend and they are targeting the swing states. will they be effective? >> we don't hear much from the nra until it's election year. then they are advocating for republicans. sometimes you wonder if they shouldn't be called the national republican advocates. >> is president obama going to get rid of the second amendment if he wins a second term on november 6th? >> no. that ain't going to happen. you can count on it. if he was going to do it, he would have done it during the first three years. clin

that we should go back to the rates we had when bill clinton was president creating 23 million new jobs and creating more millionaires to boot. we can not only reduce the deficit, encourage job growth through small businesses that we're able to make the investments that are necessary in indication our energy. host: president obama wednesday night at the first debate. alan viard. guest: there are a few things i would take issue with. the bush tax cut to expire for the high income levels and we would be going back to the rate prevailed under president clinton. that is not quite right. there will be a new tax called the unearned medicare income tax will impose an extra 3.8% on interest, dividends, and capital gains. that will be 3.8% higher than clinton tax rates. there will also be a medicare tax will increase. i think that 18 numbers right for cutting taxes on small businesses. republicans have made a tactical mistake when they tried to market this on the ground that they are for small business. the goal of the tax cut is to remove distortions in the economy, but when you focus on its sp
